11:00 pm we're going to put up an open thread. o'reilly factor is next. good night from washington, d.c.. we'll you tomorrow for you. that will do it. good night. >> eric: this is a fox news alert. the dow getting slammed today. down 513 points. losing 1,400 points in a matter of days, wiping out all of the 2011 gains. hello, everyone. 5:00 on the east coast. this is "the five." i'm eric bolling, along with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, dana perino and greg gutfeld. "the five" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> eric: all right. we're drowning in debt and businesses aren't hiring. two deadly ingredients to an ailing economy. two manifestations of obamanomics. tax, spend and spread the wealth. the economy is in turmoil and we have a front-row seat to

obamanomics failing right in front of our eyes. listen to the promise mr. mr. obama made two years ago. >> you know, a year from now, i think people are going to see that we're starting to make some progress. but there is still going to be pain out there. if i don't have this done in three years, then there will be a one-term proposition. >> eric: time has run out, mr. president. we can only hope for change in 2012. dana, you had a front-row seat to markets melting down like this. tell us what goes on beyond the scenes. d/b/a one of th -- d/b/a -- >> dana: one of the things you realize you don't have total control. you see the drops out there, it makes you sick to your stomach. i thought about the mom and dads who have money in the 401(k). hopefully they don't watch every day. this is not a good trend. a year ago today, treasury geithnered a op-ed they entitled "wet com t "welcome toe

recovery." if this is the recovery, president obama might be prophetic in this being one term. something else you can't control much in february of 2009, joe biden on friday night was interviewed and they had a particularly good week in the stock market that week. he said, "this is what president obama can do for the economy and the stock market." i thought you can't try to take credit for the gains and not be willing to take the blame for the downs. so they kind of set themselves up for a bad situation. >> eric: bring in here, and a couple days after mr. obama victory lap about getting his debt deal signed. everyone including -- listen, everyone on the left said wow! whew! avoided catastrophe. meanwhile, we're down 1400 points in a few days. >> bob: if everybody listened to you, prozac sales would go through the roof there are good things throughout that go on. certain manufacturerring sectors are doing well.
11:03 pm
auto industry is doing well that you wanted to sell off, if i remember right. >> greg: i love the volts. >> bob: i don't know what it is. i don't like the hybrid. i don't know what it means. >> greg: oven toasters on wheels. >> bob: the other thing he said something that was exactly right. i may be a one-term president. if it's like this next year. it ain't going to be like this next year. it will be better. you have to put a munchkin against him and that's a problem. >> greg: recovery under obama is worse than chicken under colonel sanders. how is that? i thought about that all day. >> bob: i bet you had to through it through. >> greg: took three hours. it's clearly the tea party's fault, isn't it? >> bob: it is. >> eric: andrea, the tea party was completely -- we're getting -- >> greg: blamed for this last week. >> eric: taken to task for saying "completely" but the fiscal conservatives, michele bachmann, gomeer and steve king said it's a bad deal. they predicted this.
11:04 pm
>> andrea: i don't think you can single-handedly point to the debt deal or tea party. that's not what we're seeing across wall street. but if you look at europe, this is the same thing happening here. it's straight across the euro zone where they had the housing crisis and debt crisis. you see in greece, the government took up 40% of the greek economy. it became so huge, unsustainable now they can't save themselves. this is across the continent. it's the same road we're going down here. credit the tea party for at least trying to stop it. >> greg: they were the ones in the clip shouting "stop." yet, they were getting blamed. bob, if i remember correctly you said the tea party was going to cause the stock market to plunge. >> bob: it did. >> greg: we got a phony deal to stop the debt ceiling crisis and it's plunging more. >> eric: i'm not sure it was you but someone said if we don't sign the debt deal the house will go up in flames.
11:05 pm
>> bob: it wasn't me. can i ask a question about the greece analogy? >> andrea: sure. >> bob: does it mean since greece has always been a stable and thoroughly well managed economy -- >> andrea: says who? >> bob: are we going to have a bunch of greek immigrants coming here like you, so we'll have more of you here? >> andrea: my father came to this country, he couldn't make money in greece. he saw he couldn't be successful and he came here and didn't take a nick from the government. he was so poor, and he started off working in the kitchen of a restaurant and he made all of his kids do the same. we worked, worked, worked and not take a penny from the government. it's why i believe what i believe. if more people were like that and not under the let's all be under the government, reaching and gragging, we'd better off. >> bob: he made you work 22 hours a day. >> andrea: i'm better off for it. >> greg: i went to her diner in the town. it had great rice pudding. >> andrea: great rice pudding. you were there!

11:07 pm
the republicans. is it a shock that president raises money? you make the line about rundraiser one, every president i know has to rundraiser because they have. >> eric: well, he is using at it lot. flew to miami. >> he can't help it that his birthday is today. happy birthday, mr. president. >> eric: this is not the time or place -- he took a victory lap on the debt deal and that seemed where he was going with this. >> greg: part of this fundraising was something called 50 for 50. he is turning 50. get 50 new people in the campaign. itth it sounds like a pyramid scheme. something that doesn't bork but to get it to work you have to attract more believers. you have to get the people to agree in the grand belief in change without specifics. a pyramid. >> dana: i do think he is tone deaf. i was in wyoming for a few days visiting family with the
11:08 pm
cheyenne frontier, it was great. and i got to tell you, they feel so disconnected. "they" meaning the folks. the folks o'reilly talks about. feel so disconnected from washington, giving $40,000, not everybody did at the birthday party, but to give -- a lot of people aren't making $40,000 in a year. >> andrea: which is why -- >> bob: did they have the barrel racing thing? >> dana: yeah. >> bob: good looking women racing those -- i love that. >> eric: anybody else think -- >> bob: wait. i want to add to this. by the way, i now figured it out. you are the tony montana of this "the five." >> greg: he doesn't wear a tie. >> eric: because he doesn't wear a tie. >> dana: who is tony montan montana? is that your point? >> bob: yeah. you talk about fundraising. obama is going to end up raising probably i think we'll get to $1 billion. that is the most successful fundraiser that has been done. that is what you are supposed to do. get it through your head. >> dana: he will need every penny of it.
11:09 pm
>> bob: correct. >> andrea: in 2008 territory when you look at what is happening with the market. he is embarking on a bus tour because he is losing ground in key battleground states. that is where he is heading. he has to do it. >> greg: he is not a great fundraiser. >> bob: he's not a great fundraiser? >> greg: he is historical president and that's why people give him money to it. he's boring. >> eric: point one thing out. what is the line he has used over and over and over again blaming millionaires and billionaires and comp rate jets? guess what he threw last night? party for millionaires and billionaires. daps these are people paying their fair share. >> greg: leave and take the canoli. >> bob: you have to get out of this stuff. if he doesn't -- everything, nothing you can -- >> eric: the stock market dropped 500. >> bob: right, the stock market dropped 500 point. i don't know. >> greg: blame the tea party. >> bob: i do. >> eric: coming up, the 2012 iowa debate is one week from

11:17 pm
he waited until it was a done deal that we would increase the debt ceiling and then he came out and made a statement that he didn't like the deal after all. >> dana: doing her job as an analyst. so the question this goes back to the maya cull pa you had to do -- mea culpa. she has an analyst and rumored to be a presidential candidate. it's a tricky line to walk. what is interesting is what she is saying is governor romney was not a profile in courage in the debt ceiling. i don't think any of the candidates were sticking their heads up. part of it is a strategy. >> andrea: eric, is it because -- >> greg: smart move. it was a satan sandwich. he didn't want to take a bite out of it. >> eric: obama took a bite out of the satan sandwich and said don't raise the deal. >> andrea: that is the issue with romney. he ords and sandwich and

11:19 pm
we had a debate and obama said we have to do it and democrats said we need to do this or the market will meltdown. guess what is happening? the markets are melting down. >> bob: if they got clean like everybody else clean debt ceiling increase you wouldn't have had it. >> dana: bob, can we remind the viewers while it might be true, that president obama when he was senator wrote a blistering statement to president bush saying it was a dereliction of duty to raise the debt ceiling. nobody was pure. >> bob: i understand that. you should have stayed in wyoming one more day. he apologized for that. >> andrea: listen to the romney ad on target and i think will be a key for what is to come for other candidat candidates. ♪ ♪ >> yes, we can.

thank you. >> if i don't have it done in three years then it will be a one term proposition. >> andrea: powerful stuff. >> greg: a great ad point ofs out that americans are disillusioned over promise of obama and liberalism. leftism is like her piece. you forget how bad it was until it comes back. liberals pop up every 25, 30 years. everybody goes oh, maybe it will work this time. it's like this is terrible. go away! then it goes away. that's why. >> dana: a good point. so republicans have to have someone to put forward. >> andrea: i want to get off mitt romney. >> bob: i want to know who does his hair. >> andrea: get off mitt romney. are you gellous? i want to talk about tim pawlenty. a new poll shows that in iowa, people don't know who he is.

11:26 pm
let me ask dana this question. huntsman has problems in the campaign. weaver, people don't foe who he is but a political consultant for years and i've known him for a long time. it seems every campaign he goes into, a bomb goes off. now he is having a problem with huntsman's wife. [ inaudible ] i wish the republican presidential craziness would get over. >> dana: this started with an article in politico where a disgruntled campaign volunteer spilled some beans. whether or not they're accurate beans remains to be seen. but it did cause some stir, because there is internal fighting. nobody likes anything more in politics than the internal fighting story. i remember at the white house, that would be if anybody was not getting along, like karl rove wasn't getting along with somebody, that was big news. but the problem for governor huntsman, the most -- we just talked about governor pawlenty name i.d. being low, governor huntsman has the same problem. kathryn lopez of national review had a tweet today where
11:27 pm
she said this was a brilliant move by the huntsman campaign. talk about infighting and get in the news. >> bob: it's usually campaign that are well known with infighting. not 1%ers. that is a bad sign. >> greg: you can't have drama if nobody knows who you are. the drama is the bachmann campaign. >> bob: big drama. we were talking about that on a serious note. they have this next week, the straw poll in ames, which is the ames republican party extortion every year, every four years to raise money. but that is a high-stakes game for both bachmann and pawlenty because they're from minnesota. haven't been there to minnesota before they expect to win. bachmann could do well, but i think john mccain will do well. and he won't go back -- >> dana: andrea he said today -- herman cain said if he doesn't come in third he's getting out. >> bob: he didn't? >> dana: yeah. >> bob: got bless you, herman.
11:28 pm
you have guts. what is mitt romney doing? is he in this -- >> dana: he is not in the straw poll but another candidate we haven't talked about yet is newt gingrich. >> greg: not going up. >> andrea: same place as the stock market. >> greg: going down very fast. can we talk about one person, though, talk about this upcoming debate. >> andrea: a week from today on fox news channel. bret baier hosts. >> greg: they are not going to let all the candidates on because you have to get more than i guess 1%. that leaves out thaddeus mccotter. who is running for president who nobody really knows who he is. the problem with this, he is an amazing debateer. incredibly smart. it's a shame they can't let him in. >> bob: that is the criteria, hell, you can get in. >> andrea: we haven't talked about rick perry. another one of bob's favorites. prayer rally is this weekend.
11:29 pm
people talk about him getting in this race. does it hurt him he is not partaking in the early debates? >> dana: i don't think it hurts him necessarily. it could hurt him in the longer run in terms of the financial thing because you have to set up fundraising and bob says if you don't have the money you can't pay for your campaign and you are not going to run. >> bob: good thing he is having a prayer thing this weekend because that's all he has a chance of doing is a prayer. fred thompson, as you remember, went to be the savior of the party and he went to iowa. talk about a meltdown. not just the ridiculous butter thing they had down there that melts every year. disgusting. do i away with that -- do away with that. >> eric: you know who wins this? tea party. >> bob: oh, man! please. >> eric: if it's michele bachmann, then rick perry would run. if it wasn't her, sarah palin would win that because she also represents the tea party. >> andrea: as someone who worked obsix campaigns bachmann has a great opportunity in iowa. she will gain strength. she has a significant chance in new hampshire but south carolina is where she should look.
11:30 pm
look, bob, you might move to new zealand like you said. >> bob: i give her a lot of credit. she is doing -- sorry. >> andrea: she is gaining strength despite the efforts by, as we talked about earlier, pawlenty trying to take her out. his campaign, spread the rumors about the migraines. now he had to pull ads in iowa. dirty campaign tricks. if he is trying to stay relevant, he is not doing it in the right way. >> greg: did you hear the intern called bachmann a crazy lady? >> dana: the problem for governor pawlenty lately he doesn't sound like himself. >> bob: for sure. >> greg: he doesn't know who he is. >> dana: no one else does either. >> bob: i was about to get that. listen, one thing about winning in iowa. new hampshire has never been good, rarely good to the winner of iowa if you look to the history of that is difficult. the real problem is getting through new hampshire she will do all right in south carolina. if she can get there. coming up, yeah, former vice
